Sure has been a while. It happened this past Saturday night while my wife, sisters, couple other girls and my brother in law were out for a Halloween party in D.C. I stepped outside the club for a moment with my sister so she could smoke and saw some dude get thrown outside by the bouncers while he was yelling and screaming. I had a gut feeling maybe it might have involved my brother in law so I ran inside and all lo and behold, it was. To make a long story short, some guy and his friend were bothering my sisters and didn't like it when my bro in law asked em to get lost so they got loud and the one dude and his friend got kicked out. We left shortly after and as soon as we walked outside, the guy was still there and saw my bro in law so he started yellin and screaming like a monkey while his friends and bouncers were holding him back. He was pretty big, I'd say about 6'3 220ish. Eventually he broke through, starting running towards my bro in law way behind me, and when he was about to run past me, I stuck my foot out and he stumbled over it a bit as I clocked him smack dab on the side of his face with all my weight. He almost fell down but he caught himself even though he was wobbly. He looked pretty ****ed, and shocked, considering I'm 5'8ish and 140, so I punched him square in the front of his face and he came back with a quick punch and brushed me up against a parked car. I put both my hands behind his neck and pulled him forward to take away any leverage he had and he kept missing me. His friends jumped in and I thought I was gonna get a pretty good hurt but fortunately they were just holding us apart. Then I heard a glass bottle break only to find out my bro in law kept an empty beer bottle inside his coat for this kinda situation. The fight broke out between them and then I ran around, struggled through a bouncer, broke free as their attention diverted to them, and ran up to the other dude and got him a good few times straight in the face again. I don't know what the guy's deal was but he had it coming. I wouldn't ever pick a fight with someone but I had to throw the first hit otherwise he was gonna attack my brother in law. It has been a very long time since I had gotten into a fight but to be honest, it actually felt really good. One huge difference was that I was a lot more composed this time. I was never yelling, swearing, or swinging wildly, hell, I wasn't out of breath even. I saw a few guys in the corner holding up their phones so I asked him if they recorded it and are gonna put it on Youtube. One of them gave me a business card and it turns out they were self-proclaimed "professional" videographers, so I doubt they'll upload it on their page, haha. At any rate, not encouraging violence here but thought I'd share a semi-interesting story with you guys.
